"Dr. Mizgala and Her Staff Are the Best in the Business! Dr. Mizgala is the best! I had my initial consultation in August 2018, to discuss excess skin removal on my stomach, back and arms after losing around 140 pounds. I had maintained the weight loss for around 15 years, and my work and financial situation finally made skin removal surgery possible. I knew I was looking at major surgery/ surgeries, and I needed to feel confident and trusting of the person I chose to perform such extensive work on me. I have pre-existing high blood pressure, frequent skin infections and a history of severe nausea and vomiting with anesthesia. I needed a surgeon who appreciated the complexity involved with the amount of skin I needed removed, and who would be able to safely get the results I wanted. I consulted with two other surgeons, and both of those appointments were rushed and quite uninformative. Instead of answering my questions, I was referred to a pamphlet or the internet as I was being shown the door. My consultation with Dr. Mizgala was the exact opposite. I was encouraged and comfortable before I went to the office. Patty, the office manager, was so sweet and helpful when I spoke to her to make my appointment. At the consultation, Dr. Mizgala and I discussed several procedures to get the best results for my body type. She took the time to fully explain the pros and cons of each procedure, the downtime and recovery involved, and the results I could realistically expect. She answered my questions and addressed my concerns with respect and dignity. Together Dr. Mizgala and I came up with a plan of action that would provide the best outcome for me. I never felt rushed or like I was in a sales pitch; I was at ease and I just knew I was in good hands. From that very first day, I have felt safe, comfortable and supported by the entire staff. Every visit since then has just reinforced my feeling of gratitude for having found such a wonderful, caring surgeon and her awesome team. Dr. Mizgala and her staff truly care about their patients’ complete recovery. I had a fleur de lis tummy tuck and radiofrequency assisted liposuction on my neck in November, a bra line back lift in March, and an arm lift in April. I only had one minor wave of nausea between all 3 surgeries; I’ve experienced worse with a 15 minute epidural. I had several feet of incision on my torso and arms with the 3 surgeries. Given my long history of skin infections, it was not surprising that I experienced delayed healing in some areas. Dr. Mizgala saw me every single day, including weekends, and she came to my condo to check on me. She was also a strong advocate in helping me get the care I needed to heal with the best results. I felt her concern and I knew she sincerely cared about my recovery. I am absolutely thrilled with my results. Dr. Mizgala and her team have treated me like family throughout this entire process. I never expected this to be such a life-changing experience, inside and out. Dr. Mizgala and her staff’s encouragement helped me to find self-confidence I didn’t even realize I was missing! They all truly care about their patients’ holistic recovery every step of the way. When my life circumstances allowed me the opportunity to have my excess skin removed, this was mostly about the practicality of getting rid of the physical complications caused by the skin while I was still relatively young. I wanted to be able to exercise without having infections and interference from the extra skin, and I wanted to get the extra weight off my back to help my sciatica and hip pain. I got the practical results I was looking for, but the care, support and encouragement of Dr. Mizgala and her staff have given me so much more. I thought this was going to be the last step in my weight loss journey, but it has turned out to be the start of my new life. I’m not afraid to stand up for myself, which is an incredible and priceless surprise. My friends and family see a huge difference in the way I look and carry myself, physically and mentally. I recently turned 45 years old, and I called it my Re-Birth Day. I knew I would have a significant change in my body, but I never dreamed I would have such an incredible mental and emotional transformation so quickly. I have been reborn as a confident, self-assured woman, and I am excited to think about what’s to come in my new life."- L. / RealSelf / May 09, 2019

"I Had a Wonderful Experience - It has been a few years, but Dr. Mizgala did my breast reduction and tummy tuck.

Juvéderm injections, on average, only take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on which areas are being corrected. Your face will be cleaned and the injection spots will be selected. To reduce discomfort during the process, Juvéderm dermal fillers contain a local anesthetic. After your treatment, you are allowed to go back to your daily routine, but strenuous activity, including exercise, should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You should be careful to not touch your face after your treatment to avoid massaging the filler into other areas.
What to Expect
You typically experience a noticeable improvement immediately after your Juvéderm procedure, but you may also develop mild swelling or bruising in the treated areas for approximately 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm dermal fillers usually are visible for up to one year; some patients find that their improvements last longer after multiple years of treatments. Talk to Dr. Mizgala about when to book a touch-up or full session at A Woman Plastic Surgeon to keep your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Juvéderm cost?
Your cost for Juvéderm will vary based on how much filler is necessary for the treatment area. Prior to administering your Juvéderm injections, a customized treatment plan will be made to fit your goals and budget. After this, your injector can discuss cost estimates and payment options.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
Although most patients do not find it necessary, a local anesthetic can be applied to the treatment area prior to injection if you are worried about pain. Following the treatment, you may feel some slight swelling and bruising that will usually be gone in 5 – 7 days, depending on the treatment area. You should contact our office if you experience any lasting pain or abnormal side effects after your treatment.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Relaxers and fillers improve wrinkles throughout the face but with different approaches. Injectable wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX, correct dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle contractions. Juvéderm is an injectable dermal filler that corrects static wrinkles by increasing volume. Juvéderm is designed to correct mild to moderate wrinkles or to add volume to your lips and cheeks.
What results can I expect?
It may take 1 – 3 days to see the full results of your treatment. Generally, it only takes one session to achieve your goals. However, you can schedule a second appointment if you would like to improve your results.
How long do results typically last?
The effects of one Juvéderm treatment can last from one to two years. This will vary, depending on what filler is used and where it was injected. The longevity of results can also depend on how fast your body breaks down the product.
